Hosta Leather Sheen

By Zillis/Lohman – 1988

Isn’t hybridizing amazing? This is a cross between Sum and Substance and Venusta.  This small hosta can form patches but remains low growing. The pointy leaves are very dark green, one of the darkest of any hosta, and very shiny. They have a nice heavy substance, like leather, that resists snail damage. Lavender bells appear in July.

Hosta Queen Josaphine

By Kuk – 1991

Hosta Blue Cadet, Krossa Regal, Fire Island and Queen Josephine

Hosta Blue Cadet, Krossa Regal, Fire Island and Queen Josephine

Queen Josephine is a sport of Josephine and her stand out feature is her beautiful shinny dark green leaves with bright lemon yellow margins; so glossy that they look wet. The plant is medium sized topping out at around 2 ½ feet wide and it’s loose vase shaped form reaches a little over 1 ½ feet tall.  This medium fast grower waits till August to send up lavender flowers on 33” scapes.
